I just built a new pc, and when ever I start playing a game like farcry 3, about 30 seconds into the game my pc completely turns off, not Windows shut down, it just turns off, I usually have to flip around the switch on the power supply to get it up and running again, any ideas?

CPU:FX-4179
GPU: GTX 560ti
RAM: 4GBx2 crucial
MOBO: Biostar TA970XE
PSU: Eagle ET-PSVT500 500 Watt

Sounds like a defective PSU. You usually get what you pay for in power supplies.

Are you overclocking anything? Double check and make sure all your screws on your mobo are snug and that the stands are all there as well. What else is the computer plugged in with? is it on a cheap power strip connected to 90 different extensions? Basically just fine comb everything before you just go "ah its the PSU" Oh, and what temps is your computer running at?

No overclocking, I haven't checked the snugness, I guess I can do that today, my power outlet has two plugs, one for pc and one for monitor. And all my temps read all good ( 60C GPU and everything else around 40C)
